02-21&22-09 Saturday/Sunday Week 3

Tommy and Shana with Coach Burgener.

This weekend Tommy and I attended the CrossFit Olympic Lifting Certification with Coach Mike Burgener. I've never had so much fun doing burpees in my life! It was 2 full days of breaking down each Olympic lift --the snatch, the clean and the jerk-- and learning each one almost inch by inch. I'm fairly stiff and I never touched anything heavier than an empty bar! I highly recommend going if you need to deepen your understanding of any of those moves.

Training Log
9AM Sat
5,000 x Burgener Warm-up (snatch grip and clean grip)

11 Trillion Front Squats
Gabillion Squat Cleans w/PVC & empty bar
Lost count of Push Jerks & Split Jerks

Time ~36:45:11

Maybe tomorrow I can sneak a pair of nickels onto a "girl bar"... ;o)

:::: Side Note ::::
My shoulder is feeling fantastic. I'm really excited and thinking maybe it's not going to slow me down as much as I thought. I have another treatment scheduled with Dr.Sadri tomorrow morning - so I'm anxious to see what he thinks of progress so far. I think I LOVE kinesiotape. Turns out it's a great conversation starter. I might start wearing it out to bars when I am trying to pick up hot guys. (Just kidding, Shugs.)

Glad you guys had a great time. I need to talk to you about kinesiotape. My left shoulder's really starting to ache again -- AND I THOUGHT IT WAS OVER!

Shana A. said...

Sheryl, you'll have to talk to Dr. Sadri about kinesiotape ...

Tommy said...

Sheryl I'll sell you some duct tape for $25, and I'll even put it on your shoulder free of charge.
